    magpie diner's Note:

    A handy little recipe that I adapted from a pretty generic looking Mexican cookbook that I have. The original recipe calls for feta cheese, so that's an option if you eat dairy. I think it's a great dish without the cheese but also plan to incorporate Almond 'feta Cheese' Spread With Herb Oil (Vegan) into it next time. Great way to use fresh beans from your garden, they are the star of the dish!

    1. 1
      Bring about 2 inches of water to boil in the bottom of a steamer. Add the beans to the top part, cover and let steam until tender but still firm (about 4-5 minutes). You really want to retain their crispness. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. You could also dunk them into a ice water bath. Drain well and pat dry.
    2. 2
      While the beans cook, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, mustard and garlic and season to taste with S&P. (If using feta you likely won't want any salt).
    3. 3
      Place the cooled beans into a bowl with the onions, cilantro, radish slices, oregano and toss together with the dressing. Adjust seasoning.
    4. 4
      Transfer to a serving platter. Surround the beans with the tomato wedges for garnish. Chill until ready to serve.

      Wow a real different green bean salad!
      I had to boil the beens for about 12 minutes until they reached the tender but still "al dente" stage.
      As I had only strong onions I drained the hot beens, added the onions, tossed and covered for 2 minutes. After this I placed them in big bowl to cool down completely.
      I added the dressing half radish, tossed again, placed the salad on the serving dish and decorated with remaining radish and tomatoes.
      Yummy and beatiful, thanks!

      Made this pretty much as suggested except the beans were broken for easier eating. The oil was reduced to about 1/3 cup. As a real feta lover, feta was sprinkled over the salad prior to serving. Made for ZWT8.

      Although I followed the recipe, I did make a few small changes, mostly because, although my other half likes feta cheese, I can do without it! So, I made the salad without it but included it on the table! I also used a little lemon pepper in place of the usual S&P, & we had a great salad! Love the combo of beans & cherry tomatoes! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]
